Hold me together

O dusty heart, may your sinews hold me together
place my fragile mind beneath the oak leaves
and leave the rain within the sky
pull me from the ashes and help me rise
from ignorance and arrogance
pull my head towards the light
gentle and silent
we ache as the old do
and groan as the young
make my days worth living
my nights worth dreaming
tease me from death
spark the fire
ember light
smile upon my shadows
keep the tongues at bay
sink the anchor
O dreamer, dancer
turn the days into November
Darling, I listen
my mind will quicken
just breathe me in
steal the ruby

unfurl into beauty
